Go therefore and make disciples…”

Disciples are learners.  At Foothills we strive to follow Jesus’ example of learning and growing in a small group setting.  We have a vast and varied selection of small groups to meet each disciple’s unique needs and differing stages of growth.  Our small groups differ in size and focus, but each shares the same goal – applying the Word of God to our everyday lives and growing in love for God and each other.

In a small group believers can:

  • Move from being mere observers to becoming genuine participants in the Gospel
  • Make lasting friendships, learn to love and be loved
  • Work through the issues of their lives and grow in God’s grace and gifting
  • As God’s Word is honored and obeyed, skills are acquired and leaders are developed

Since people are at different stages of development in Christ, we offer a huge variety of small groups for all ages and interests.

Home Groups

Home Groups are small groups of believers who meet weekly in homes across East County.  Each is unique, but they follow a general pattern of worship, sharing and discussion, Bible study and prayer. The casual setting is ideal for making friends, asking questions, sharing insights and growing in your God given gifts. All Home Fellowships are co-ed and many offer childcare.  We include an updated list of Home Group locations in our bulletin during weekly worship services .

The major focus of Home Fellowship is true Christian fellowship, building relationships, and looking to the Bible for solutions to everyday problems.

You are invited to attend any of our Home Groups listed in the directory below.  For directions or other information please call the leader listed for the Home Group.
